When Michael Cohen takes a seat before Congress to testify about his time working as President Donald Trump’s lawyer and fixer, critics of the White House might not get all that they’re hoping for. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has reportedly interviewed Cohen for more than 70 hours and praised him as an exemplary cooperator in the Russia investigation, has reportedly approved his testimony — and also placed limits on how much he can reveal about the ongoing probe.
